You will soon have another restaurant choice along Second Avenue. Coming soon signs are now up for Hou Yi Hot Pot at 97 Second Ave. between East Fifth Street and East Sixth Street...
Hou Yi Hot Pot currently has a location on Hester Street in the northern fringes of Chinatown. Serious Eats called Hou Yi "comfortable and friendly" and "This is your Manhattan Chinatown go-to for hot pot."
The space still looks pretty raw inside, so you may have a little wait for hot pot here.
Until last June, the storefront housed the longtime laudromat Launderette.
